In the US, 42% of companies are outsourcing. Latin America sees a growing interest in BPO with 5 out of 10 Latin American companies implementing or planning to implement BPO. Despite the obvious growth of business operations outsourcing, the business report reveals a widespread reluctance among many leading companies who still see BPO as a risky solution for lowering operational costs. In fact, 4 in 10 companies are not comfortable with the idea of losing control over key business operations and 27% say they fear the risk that outsourcing entails.
With about 3,300 business executives in the mid-market industry surveyed, the Grant Thornton report offers an accurate inside peek into the status of BPO globally. The Business Report confirms outsourcing trends too. The most popular business operations that are being outsourced are IT, taxes and HR & Payroll.
In addition to what businesses are more likely to outsource, the report also delves into the benefits that lead businesses to choose BPO, namely cost reduction and efficiencies improvement. Business continuity and access to competent talent are two other factors that urge companies to BPO.
